INVITATION TO ACTION: Play at your next patriotic event
DESCRIPTION: Portland saxophonist Mike Phillips played the The Star-Spangled Banner at the NASCAR race that took place over the weekend. West Byrd begins the underscoring with ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ AKA the ‘Black National ‘Anthem. NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace has been advocating for racial justice and a threatening looking noose was found in his stall recently. A lovely moment of music and resistance.
